C-Drifter,

My twin brother rides a wing...and rides it hard too. Dragging every thing on it and large wheelies on a Toyo Proxes 4. He's on his second one and loves it. Don't have any knowledge of the Michelin.

Of the options I'd pick Toyo because I've never come across a Toyo tire that didn't kick ass!

Still vote for triple tread as an option... Laughing

Any clearance problems with a 205/65R-16 on a 1800R?

Thanks

stock socks, 1 up- no chance, if you have shorter than stock shocks and/or ride two up and/or with heavy loads you might have to trim you inner fender brace a little. It's really easy to do while you have the tire off... grind it down a bit hit it with some spray paint and install the new DS tire!

Crying or Very sad i can't find it now....i've got some folks helping me...there's plenty of that kinda stuff out there...just hard to track down the right one. Cool

As for the Mich vs Toyo...haven't rode a Toyo yet...loving my Michelin HydraEdge 205/65/16 though...it kicks ass too. Wink

Although i am digging the Toyo tread patterns I've seen...might try one in about 20k. Twisted Evil
